Rarely do you happen across books with such wide appeal.... Jam-packed with facts relevant to [readers'] immediate lives and curiosities. For both young and old these books pack a wallop of 'coolness' value! ... The reader feels a sense of discovery as each book is explored in depth. The illustrations are bright, bold and colourful.
